    Default Adding new mailbox server on multi-server setup

    I've got a four server setup of Zimbra OSS 3.1.1 running on G5 Xserves and I'm looking to add an additional mailbox server (or perhaps 2) to decrease load on the single mailbox instance. I've got about 2000 users on the mailbox server already setup, and about 1000 users still to add.

    Is there a way to move user accounts from the existing mailbox server to a new server? I'm not worried about transferring messages, just wondering if I need to delete users from one server and re-zmprov them into the new server or if the accounts can be moved.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    In the Network Edition there is a zmmailboxmove for server to server. If in a cluster then you can use backup/restore.

    Hi, I hate to have my first post a question. Does the move mailbox move the complete user or just the mailbox.

    I want to move all my users to a new system, but I want to do it a few users at a time. What would be the best way to do this?
